Police allege the car rammed their vehicle causing extensive damage before it was driven off from the area.

Officers successfully deployed a tyre-deflation device on Steve Irwin Way at about 12.20am and continued to follow the vehicle as it travelled north on the Bruce Highway.

At about 1am, a second tyre-deflation device was deployed just south of Gympie.
